Seeking Alpha recently featured an article called “Are You Missing the ETF Rally?” Some of the points are very interesting, confirming what I have been advocating for a long time that a disciplined investment method is of utmost importance for long-term success.
The featured computer model shows a listing of ETF sector rankings, somewhat similar to my StatSheet, although derived from a different approach. Some of the ETF rankings are close to my own, although I don’t know how complete their data base is. It does not really matter, what matters is that via a ranking system you can easily identify those ETFs which are showing leadership and, more importantly, those which are not.
Just as selecting the appropriate ETFs is paramount, staying away from those that are heading for the basement can be even more important for your portfolio’s health.
